I got my Frame.work DIY laptop today with:

Intel® Core™ i7-1185G7
32GB (1 x 32GB) DDR4-3200
Intel® Wi-Fi 6E AX210 No vPro®

Plus these expansion cards


Assembled it in half an hour. Installed Manjaro Gnome 21.1.1 and everything works, including the fingerprint reader.

I'm using it now, and it's already my favorite laptop.

My ebooks and audiobooks (from @torbooks, @HoZ_Books, @mcsweeneys, and others) are for sale all over the net, but I sell 'em too, and when you buy 'em from me, I earn twice as much and you get books with no DRM and no license "agreements."

@Buford yeah I'm literally a fingerprint (or FaceID) away from another silly purchase.

Feeling a bit peckish. Luckily, my lovely wife is cooking up some buri-daikon for dinner. Yumm ...

@leo that's a good point re jet travel. Hadn't thought about it in these terms.

But it hurt me when I was in awe of a robot landing on Mars and my kid was basically yawning :D
